Encaustic painting is a process that produces impressive results with luminous and jewel-like surfaces and textures. Artists come to encaustic painting from many other mediums which then creates a dynamic and rich experience. Areas covered in this workshop include: safe studio practices, surface prep and resources. Various demonstrations will be scheduled with plenty of time for students to experiment. Learn techniques such as: melting through, line and edge, transfers, texture and collage. Each person can choose to practice all of these methods or just the ones that interest them. At the end of the workshop, artists will be familiar with a range of techniques which they can use as they develop their body of work.
Paint, equipment, tools and small practice panels will be supplied. Bring wood panels up to 9x12" if you'd like to make larger, more resolved work.
An optional materials list will be supplied once you register.
